PlayStation Now: Stream your games everywhere

08 Jan 2014 | Rasmus Larsen |

At CES 2014, Sony announced PlayStation Now; possibly one of the most significant announcements at CES. PlayStation Now lets you stream PlayStation games everywhere; to TVs, tablets, smartphones, and obviously the PlayStation 4.

PlayStation Now is the future for Sony

The PlayStation 4 cannot play PS3 games, at least not at the moment. With PlayStation Now it will all be possible, and you can even enjoy PlayStation games directly on your TV through a TV app. The vision is to stream PlayStation games to every device, including smartphones and tablets.

Some of the games that Sony highlighted during the presentation were Last of Us, God of War, Puppeteer, and Beyond: Two Souls. Sony says that it will be possible to rent games or pay for a subscription that lets you explore several games.

PlayStation Now is based on Gaikai’s streaming technology that Sony acquired in 2012. PlayStation Now works by utilizing adaptive streaming that automatically adjusts to the speed of your internet connection. It can go up to 720p resolution. Sony says that you require at least a 5 Mb/s internet connection, but promises an experience that it virtually lag-free.

PlayStation Now will launch as a closed beta in the US by the end of January, and will launch officially in the US this summer. It will work on most of Sony’s 2014 Bravia TVs.

Sony has a live demo of PlayStation Now. at CES. FlatpanelsHD will give you some hands-on experiences with the system soon.
